If perhaps you had heard all of the ridiculous shit that can possibly emanate from the mouth of a Republican, consider what Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) had to say Thursday about how the Biden administration can end the war in Ukraine.
According to the congressman, the war would immediately end of President Joe Biden asked disgraced former president Donald Trump call Russian President Vladimir Putin, telling Fox News anchor John Roberts:
The remarks from Nehls come just a day after Biden announced would be sending Abrams tanks to Ukraine to help them repel Russian troops.
When it comes to the tanks, Nehls had this to say:
“The American people have to understand that is a very powerful piece of equipment, but it requires an enormous amount of logistical support. You have to have a logistical package. It has a jet engine. When you have to remove that engine, you need a big crane. It’s called, an M-88. It’s a wrecker for a tank. And you need to have smart people working on that. You need to have the maintenance personnel. You need to have the individuals know how.”
Here’s what doesn’t make sense about what the congressman said: For years now, Donald Trump has claimed he has no ties to Russia and denied that he is friends with Putin. But now Congressman Nehls is certain that one phone call from Trump to Putin would put an end to the fighting.
If Trump can end the war so damn easily, why doesn’t he just pick up the phone and do so? No one is stopping him.
We won’t hold our breath waiting for Donald Trump to do anything good for the United States or our allies. He never has.
